It’s the boys last day of Reception today. I can’t believe how fast it’s gone.
I felt quite emotional earlier when we were giving his teacher a gift to say thank you. They really have been brilliant. Rian really has no clue how lucky he is to have spent his first year in capable, kind hands in an environment that has really nurtured a fantastic attitude to learning in him.
He’s gone from borderline apathy, to being keen to try new things, to really make an effort. He’s not afraid to ask for help with something and he loves to be praised for hard work. He’s a very competitive kid and he’s struggling with fair playing and sharing, but that’s got better as well. I’m really hoping that we can channel the competition into his school work as well as who is winning at football – there’s been rather a lot of diving for penalties by all accounts.
I imagine they are all bouncing off the walls today – we’ve had a countdown for the past week and a half about the last day and then the summer holidays “I’ve never had a summer holidays before Mummy, have I?” It got me thinking – neither have, not for a very long time! What on earth am I going to do with him for the next 8.5 weeks?!
